140 Words or Less

(Pregnant me and monsters hiking at Amicalola Falls. I grudgingly got exercise even while gravid. It was What's-his-name's idea.)

Last year, I was about to get back on the exercise bandwagon, then poof! Nothing. A year of silence. Here’s what you missed.

  • I got pregnant and had a baby.
  • Yesterday, the baby turned 12 weeks old. To celebrate, I started a couch to 5K running program. 20 minutes run/walk intervals on Days 1 and 2.
  • I ate a Wheat Free Peanut Butter cookie from Karmic Kookies. Life changing.
  • I’ve given up the frivolous internet for Lent. I won’t be on Facebook, but you can still find me here and on Decatur Patch.
  • Despite my love of verbosity, edits on my novel will progress better if I limit myself to 140 word diet updates. Kind of like Twitter’s 140 characters only super-sized into a blog about getting skinnier.
Happy Eating and Exercising. Happy Lent!


  1. Congrats on the baby! Welcome back :)

  2. Great to see you out and about again. Congrats on the baby!

  3. I'm adding working out to my Lent goals as well. Glad to see you back here though I enjoy the Patch as well.

  4. Yay Nicki! You have a beautiful family.

    Glad to see you back on the blog. Best of luck with the diet. (I'm right there with ya!)
